The cat is playing with a brown marmorated stink bug. It's the first year these insects have been in my area and they are plentiful. Fluttershy is not a cat and the image shows a ladybug, and none of this is relevant except that I needed an image.
Let me present a debate assertion that is simple, defensible, something I believe myself, and has no direct connection to politics:
Socrates is mortal.
All men are mortal -- an inference and part of common sense.
Socrates is a man -- an assertion of connection between an element and a category. As the category has not been defined and physical evidence to prove Socrates fits the category will be hard to come by, this is probably the weak point of the argument.
I suppose the use of “the historical present” or “the eternal present” for referring to Socrates will be debated.
(But I didn't read very much of it.)
